Um, my library slaps a helpful identification tag on the spine of every
book to help me find it. Your analogy, man ...
A quick sampling of 15 books from our local public library shows that:
a) All 15 have spine tags for on the shelves and barcodes for check in/out.
b) The exact location of neither tag is standardized - the height of the spine
tag is variable and attempts to not obstruct the author/title originally
printed. The barcode is *usually* placed on the back in such a way as to avoid
obstructing text, but on 2 books is on the *front* because less information got
overlaid that way.
Obviously, the library is telling us to try to not munge existing information by
sticking stuff in the Subject: line. :)
